new visions in progress

Here are some of the results of recent studio time.  (They are not finished.)  Apparently, I'm drawn to more definition than the last series of paintings.  I have been working in a combination of collage, walnut ink and fine pen.  I recently stopped traveling as frequently as I have been for the past two years, and the suggestions of home or villages keep working their way into these images.  Basic geometrical forms are replacing atmospheric layering.  I'm enjoying faster, more aggressive strokes of my pen and dramatically altering the composition of my page in one fell swoop, then solving the problem I created with an area of texture or a carefully placed line.   


  1. The color is so different in these-compared to your last pieces of work, and it makes me feel like there are new elemental forces influencing you. These are so much more grounded and Earthy than the last ones which were very air. Keep going. Keep going. Keep going.

  2. Oh gosh, and that last one it feels like it is stopping my heart!
